3 Rice Cake Snack Ideas


Let's talk snacks and how to fill in the gaps in your diet to avoid the midday slump.

My favorite snack for that is Rice Cakes! They are low in calories, a volume food, and there are so many options for toppings. Sweet or salty! Today I'm sharing salty and savory.


Filling the gaps in your diet.

Are you actually eating enough?


If you are fatigued, low energy, tired all the time, wake up, and are still ready to go back to bed you could be underfed without the right nutrition. Even hitting a wall or having a midday slump means you need more healthy carbs and protein in your diet to sustain you for the rest of your day.


Just adding in 100-300 extra calories a day with a topped rice cake, piece of fruit, a Protein Smoothie, veggies, dip, or something similar could help you avoid the midday slump.


The key is to get a minimum of 20-30 grams at each meal and 10+ grams of protein with snacks. It's been proven with research that people who spread their protein throughout the day actually lose weight faster, build muscle quicker, and feel better overall than those who eat all their protein in one setting or who only consume protein 2-3x a day. It's what I have been personally doing lately to lose the most weight.


Your goals are personal to you.

During my Nutrition Coaching program, we figure out your specific Macros and work together to get you to a goal that is attainable, filling, and works for you.

I offer weekly check-ins, recipes and how to hit protein, and tips to crushing your goals weekly.


My journal is a perfect addition to your program and I offer digital and printed versions. Get yours here: https://www.christinatremblay.com/shop


Tracking is an excellent way to see your actual calories consumed in a day. If you can get in a habit of tracking every meal, even just for a month, you will see how much of a difference it will make and how quickly your body changes. You'll be surprised at how little OR how much you consume in a day. Even small things like overeating sugar or salt, or consuming too much fat but not enough protein, can derail your progress completely even if you "feel" you are doing everything correctly.


I'm here to help you girls and there's no better time to make yourself a priority.

3 Rice Cake Snack Ideas

My favorite gluten-free option for Avocado Toast is Avocado Rice Cake! You get the crunch without the gluten and it's just as yummy!

A second savory option is to spice up your Avocado {Toast} Rice Cake with Cherry Tomatoes and Cilantro.

I love adding spices and topping to jazz it up even more

The third savory option is a lightly salted Rice Cake with Tuna. This one is an easy one to have on hand or take on the go since it just requires two ingredients. One tuna packet, I chose the Applewood smoke and one rice cake. You can spruce it up with fresh or dried herbs or serve it plain.
